Pyroluria: A Social Anxiety Condition

Pyroluria is an inherited but not commonly recognized condition that is associated with inner tension and anxiety, especially in social settings. It is made worse by stress, is more common than we realize and has overlaps with social anxiety and introversion. Carl Pfeiffer did the initial research while working with schizophrenic patients and found that the key nutrients zinc, vitamin B6 and evening primrose oil reduced and often eliminated symptoms.

You are invited to the live, online webinar on Tuesday June 17th, 2014 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern where we will host Hawthorn adjunct faculty member and "Food Mood Expert" Trudy Scott, CN for a webinar entitled "Pyroluria:  A Social Anxiety Condition". To register for this webinar please click on the link HERE and follow the online registration instructions.
